    I am looking for a new gi. Something cheap that is decent to roll with. Does anyone have experience with the atama summer kimono? I like the price, $87, and it would be perfect for the hot summer. Do you guys recommend any other gi or is this a solid gi?

    I bought a Gameness Platinum through Cageside and i'm very happy with it, nice gi. Excellent service through Boomer. If the Gameness single is made like their platinum I reckon thats the way to go.

    Groundandpound.com has the pearl for 89.

    I ordered the ATAMA summer weave once. When I got it - I knew it'd be thin, but it was about as thin as a Tokaido karate uniform I had.

    I figured if I'm gonna put 90 bux into it, what's another 50 and I got the gold weave instead.

    If you're gonna go like 2 nights a week and then hang it up after the summer, maybe. But I felt like it would rip pretty easily from regular training.

    That being said, some guys I know love them and will train through the rips and tears, while others just keep 1 in the closet for those days that are especially hot.

    Your call mate.

    I just got my Padilla kimono. customer service was great and Joe actually gave me good advice on everything I asked him. I think they make a single weave that is like 72 bucks. I definitely recomend checking them out.
